New Principal for Gilchrist Connell

Specialist national insurance law firm Gilchrist Connell is delighted to announce the promotion of Special Counsel Marini Mann to Principal from January 1, 2019.  Marini is based in the firm’s Melbourne office, and this new appointment recognises her exceptional professionalism and leadership.

Marini recently impressed the judges in this year’s Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards, having been shortlisted as a finalist in a highly competitive field.

“Marini is enormously deserving of her promotion – having achieved that rare balance of excellent technical skills, empathy, efficiency and seeking better paths to early and effective outcomes,” said Managing Principal Richard Wood.

“She is a natural leader and very generous with her time and expertise in volunteering with the Victorian Claims Discussion Group – as well as tirelessly mentoring and nurturing junior legal staff into rising stars,” he added.

With particular expertise and experience in professional risk and financial lines, Marini is known in the industry as a ‘passionate go-getter’ and is sought after for her commitment to consistently providing succinct, clear and practical advice.

This year, Gilchrist Connell celebrates ten years since opening in 2008.  The firm is internationally networked with The Harmonie Group, widely recognised in national law awards programs, and prominently listed in Best Lawyers, Doyle’s Guide and Chambers Asia Pacific.
